XOXO ~ Inspired

I just LOVE Bella Blvd.  This is their Valentina collection, which was perfect for this layout I wanted to replicate.  When I first saw Heather Leopard's layout with x's and o's, I fell in love.  Then she posted her Sketchy Scrapper challenges where she took her layouts and made them in to a sketch.  I was thrilled.  I didn't make it in time to link up, but was thrilled to still be inspired by Heather's layout and sketch.  (see Heather's layout and sketch below).










Thanks Heather for inspiring me!!




The Valentina Collection by Bella Blvd. is available at tMN!!
I will be back to share more layouts using this fun set of papers.
NEW Valentina

Happy Creating and Shopping,

Basic Grey - Typeset

The Basic Grey Typest collection is so pretty.  I love the color combo and the somewhat scholarly feel to the papers and embellishments.  These papers happened to match the outfits that my kids wore for the first day of school this year.  I also used this collection to showcase my daughter's induction into National Junior Honor Society. 










I just realized that I never added 7th to my daughter's layout!




Basic Grey Typeset is available at The Memory Nest.
Thanks for stopping by!

Star Wars Party

Hello.  I am here to finally share some pictures from my son's Star Wars Party.  This was one of the many things that have been keeping me busy over the last month.  Bare with me and my pictures.  I have a new camera and the pictures are not that clear and they should be. 


My son set up his characters into different scenes from Star Wars movies!



My cake.  The top was a bowl.  Then two 8/9" round cakes,  To raise it up a little, I used Rice Krispy Treats formed in the round pan.  And his "legs" were formed with Rice Krispy treats!


Check out my Star Wars party pin board to see where I found the ideas and printables for the backdrop, land speeder vehicle, garlands, etc.  Thanks to all who shared their creativity.





















































Check out my pin board where lots of my ideas originated!!

Happy Star Wars,
